Turquoise Hollywood Regency Credenza


Hi everyone! This is my latest piece that I’ve been dying to share with you!

So let me tell you how I came across this piece~

Remember the kitchen remodel I helped my sister with??
if not click here —> BIL & SIS Inspired Kitchen

Well . . . when we  were desperately searching for some cheap, used kitchen cabinets . . .
my sister took me to some awesome thrift places here in the valley!!
One of them was the called the ReStore. It’s one of the “Habitat for Humanity” donation centers!
When I saw this piece I couldn’t believe my eyes!
True Hollywood Regency Style, SOLID WOOD, and in excellent structural condition!!
FOR ONLY $50!! What A STEAL!!!

So of course it came home and sat in my art room for 4 months before I touched it!
It took a minute for her to actually speak to me and tell me what she wanted done to her 😛

She finally spoke  . . . Soooo… Here she is!

Here’s a BEFORE shot of the door panels . . .


After hand painting the edges in gold & adding new hardware!!!
I changed the location of hardware . . . Since the hardware was so much larger in size
it made more sense to put it in the center of the door!
